Deleting Workspace & workspace folder for JDI 6.40 sp9


I am using WAS 6.4 sp9 with Oracle 9i. I created some tracks , workspace folders & workspaces under them for testing the JDI. but Now I want to clean up everything and make it ready for development. When I am trying to delete workspace folder & workspace using both NWDS (remove form client option) & command prompt(delete & deleteworkspace command). I could not. I am using administrator so no question of authorization here I suppose. these are the error msgs



12:42:27.125 REMOVE (PENDING: Reset synced version failed - folder expected (WORKSPACE)) active (C:\Documents and Settings\ashutoshd\dtr\nwdev\test1\hcltech_ORG\cons\active\)

12:42:27.125 REMOVE (PENDING: Reset synced version failed - folder expected (WORKSPACE)) inactive (C:\Documents and Settings\ashutoshd\dtr\nwdev\test1\hcltech_ORG\cons\inactive\)

12:42:27.140 REMOVE (PENDING: Reset synced version failed - folder expected (WORKSPACE)) active (C:\Documents and Settings\ashutoshd\dtr\nwdev\test1\hcltech_ORG\dev\active\)



in Command Prompt:


>deleteworkspace -w Test/WS1

Could not delete workspaceConflict [(pre||post)-condition failed: x:cannot-delet


>delete Test

Folder item "Test" is not activity recorded

Try "deleteworkspace" command for deleting workspaces.

    Hi Ashutosh,

    To delete a workspace, certain pre-conditions need to be satisfied, and one of the conditions is that a display-name should be set for the DTR repository. (This pre-condition has been removed from SP11).

    In order to set the repository display name, go to:


    (The /sysconfig/ is not shown as a member of the root. You will have to directly go to the above resource)

    Provide a display name and click on 'Set'. After this, you should be able to delete the workspace if all other pre-conditions are satisfied.

    Note: Other pre-conditions include,

    - You should have administrative privileges

    - There should be no open activities in the workspace.

    Please take a look at note 855537 - it explains how to delete a "Workspace folder".

    Also, take a look at note 782995 - it describes a feature of DTR ("empty folders are not transported").
